After blowing out earnings, Apple’s stock (AAPL) put in a big reversal and headed lower into the end of April. Since then, the stock hasn’t done much, as shares of Apple have traded in a 10 to 12 dollar range since late February. Feels like a big move is coming… but there’s more to support this.
Here are 4 reasons that I think a bigger directional move may be coming for shares of Apple Inc. (AAPL) as we near summer (use the charts below as reference):
- Bollinger Band Width is near the lowest levels seen in the last 6 months.
- AAPL stock price is near the middle of the Bollinger Bands.
- The Relative Strength Index (RSI) has been range bound since early March.
- AAPL volatility measured by (VXAPL) is near the lowest levels seen in the last 6 months.
